What is the best way to prevent cavities?

Cavities, technically known as dental caries, are damaged areas of a tooth that develop into holes over time. There are several steps you can take to limit the incidence of cavities:

  • Brush your teeth for two or three minutes, three times a day, especially after meals
  • Floss between your teeth at least once a day
  • Use toothpaste containing fluoride
  • Limit sugary foods and drinks
  • Visit Orange Beach Family Dentistry every six months for a checkup!
